Peter Weyland - Changing the World in the year of our Lord, 2023. A man of unlimited ambition who will settle for nothing short of greatness. Says Ridley Scott:
"When the first Alien movie and Blade Runner were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies. This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in Blade Runner, and Weyland-Yutani in Alien. They sent the Nostromo spaceship.
The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, who is played by Guy Pearce. That's the connection between the two films, and nothing more. Prometheus is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well."
Are you excited for Prometheus yet? I know I am!
